Survivor Samoa Season Finale Blog Party Post



Argh, football doesn't care that we have a season finale and reunion show to watch. Football doesn't care that we're already booked for TV watching until 11 PM. That's right -- tonight's show is delayed here in the NYC viewing area. I believe 60 Minutes started at about 7:22 PM ET instead of 7:00 PM. While football doesn't care about our lack of sleep tonight, graphic artist Zoetawny cared enough to make us a new logo for the show. (She rocks, as we all know.)

Once the show starts, this entry will be updated with major events. But the real details and fun will be in the comments area. Everyone is welcome and you can even bring food and beverages. I do ask that no one swings from the chandelier, please. I'm going to open up the post now and I'll let you know when the show starts here.

8:22 PM ET and we're finally starting here. (Grr.)

Apparently it started on time in some places and Brett has won immunity again. Jaison was voted out according to those who have the show airing on time.

Russell has won immunity! (Finally!)

Brett voted out.

Natalie wins. That is SO wrong. At least Russell won the 100 thousand from the fan vote.

Go Russell
I have Jaison in the pool but still think russell deserves the money, despite my initially finding him repulsive. I now find him amusing, colorful, and definitely a good gamer.
However that being said if Brett makes it to the final 2 or 3?
I believe the mostly Galu jury,(not shambo necessarily) will award Brett the money against any Foa Foa. UGH I am not for that happening.

Becky said...

Chris, I still find him repulsive, but he deserves the win.

Hey, Jackie and Vincent. Cute pictures today.

Sizzie said...

It is starting on time here. I don't know what football game we had. I won't spoiler it for anyone. Except to say...it begins with a recap. : )

Becky said...

I wish we could skip the walk down memory lane while they try and think of something nice to say about all those who are gone. Am I the only one who feels this way?

BTW, I have tamales and cold beer. Anyone want one?

Anonymous said...

WTF! If football or any other sports event runs over they should move forward with the regularly scheduled programming.

Becky said...

They did that one time and the scream was heard around the world. I feel as you do, but I guess they figure if we want to see the next show we will hang around.

My snack is going to burn because of damn football. Alec Baldwin makes me gag. Now I have to sit thru Andy f'kin Rooney.

Lisanne said...

Becky,

I agree, but sometimes a few of the earlier outs do get more screen time in that little bit than they did all season. If Brett hadn't made it as far as he did, with what little screen time he got early on when they got to his torch we would have said "wait...who WAS he anyways?" :)

Sizzie said...

Ah yes, Becky, HeidiGate.

Becky said...

Oh, boy! So, Russell didn't think it was a big deal that Brett won two in a row.

Sydney said...

WOAH!!!! Brett won again! Russel was so FAST on those beams. His low to the groundness is helpful there.

Becky said...

Anon.... go tend to your snack!

chirs said...

brett again won the immunity
omg
they should vote out jaison he performed horribly!
russell should have had it but seemed to have a puzzle brain fart
mick was close too

omg brett will win and there will be no suspense in the end
phooey

Sydney said...

I'm just going to ask again here -- Did last post and no one answered as it was after the show... really want to know your different opinions:

Can anyone tell me WHY no one has voted Russell out so they can win the million dollars? Yes he had an idol, but he was so confident he wasn't using it each time. Why not have the ballz to blindside him? Maybe next TC? If they don't get him out, he WILL win, deservedly so.

chris said...

brett will win against any of foa foa if he makes it one more immunity

Sydney said...

I feel your pain anon.

Becky said...

I think that Russell might go home.

Sydney said...

Well Jasion, we'll se if it will be you and Russell in the F3

Zoetawny said...

I can't believe the finale is here. Where has this year gone? I'm OK with anybody but Russell. I know, I know, he did play a good game but I never got over my dislike for his attitude.

I hope all of you on the east coast have survived the blizzard. I haven't read Jackie's posts yet but I'm sure there are great photos there.

Well, back to wrapping Christmas presents before I collapse and miss the show tonight.

Jackie...

A big thanks for all you do here on the blog. I really miss having the time to join in but RL has consummed me this past year.

Stay warm and safe!

Happy Holidays!
xoxo

Becky said...

No, everyone thinks that "they" are in the final two with Russell.

Brett is a real cutie.

Becky said...

John is a cutie too.

Delee said...

Zoetawny Merry Christmas to you also. Thank you for all the wonderful graphics this Survivor season!!!

Becky said...

They made the correct vote. Jaison is a nice guy, but he is weak compared to the other three Foa Foa.

Sydney said...

Well, I think Jasion should have gone no matter what.

Sydney said...

Of course Russell lost Jaison's vote.... no surprise there, though if he gets to cool ooff before the f3 vote, he might give it to Russell for his best game.

Yes, Brett won three in a row at the end. He is a contender for sure skill wise, but will the jury vote for him just because he was a team member? Won't some of his former tribe give RUssell votes for superior gameplay all along? I guess they don't know how Russell worked since day 1 because they weren't on his (losing team).

Becky said...

Yes, have a very Merry Christmas Zoetwany! Thank you for a year full of wonderful graphics.

Hey, Jackie, are you going to have the blog open for those of us non-party goers on New Years Eve? Since you won't have to be posting updates you could join us. Unless you and Vincent have other plans that is.....

Jackie said...

Sure, Becky. I'll be staying in that night.

Becky said...

Thanks, Jackie. Any particular snacks you want us to bring?

Oh, poop, the walk down memory lane.

Sizzie said...

Sydney, to answer your question..I don't know. He must just have them all snowed by thinking he will get them to the end. Are they scared of him? He made one big glaring error...maybe more but I remember one. No one would have known how much money he says he has (maybe he is lying about having it) if he had not told someone. He was playing the poor guy (remember the Katrina talk) and then had to brag about making money. His ego kept him there and his ego might be his undoing.

Jackie said...

Becky - Chocolate fits any occasion.

I feel like I'm in a time warp reading things not aired here yet. Please keep it up guys! I want to know!

Becky said...

Wonder if they give them cue cards so they can all have something nice to say about each one of them.

Becky said...

Poor Jackie, how much time is left in the game?

Jackie said...

No time left, but I'm running over 20 minutes behind

Laurie said...

On behalf of non-football folks, I apologize that my AFC Division Champs SD Chargers held up the airing of CBS shows due to a last minute winning field goal. For other fans, what a game!!

Okay, back to Survivor. I am sorry some had to miss the first 20 minutes of the show. That's just not right!

Lisanne said...

Glad the walk down memory lane is over. On the Plus side it did give me time to grade papers and see my pool pick again. Kelly...hmm...she was like blend right? can't really remember her.

Anonymous said...

Didn't miss it. Just delayed.

mrs.whiggins said...

I'm liking that most of the memories are from the outcats themselves!

I cannot believe my guy the invisible Brett is still in this, that is if he wins this next immunity.

I don't like this challenge. I like endurance for the last challenge.

OMG could they have staged this better?

Sydney said...

Russell's got a leaner

*giggle*

Jackie said...

Just a delay on a three hour show I have to write up for on TV Squad before I go to bed when I have to get up before five tomorrow morning.

I'm so not a football fan.

Sydney said...

Wow, how are either keeping their figure on tha tpole in that wind???????

Sydney said...

wow, the suspense. JEFF THE PRODUCER is loving this! (and so are we)

Sydney said...

oh Brett, don't lose it. It will be such a better TC with bretta dn Russell in it.

Sydney said...

Gawd, that's got to feel horrible. IF Russell lost it would not be as risky for him, as his other 2 teammates are on his side. It will be a bummer if Brett is voted off tonight.

Tessa said...

RUSSELL WINS IMMUNITY

Becky said...

That guy is just darn lucky. Wonder if he will keep his word to Brett? LOLOLOL

Oh, and Jackie, plan on chocolate covered strawberries to eat with your Champaign. Perhaps we can all have a chocolate pig-out!

Russel-- you rock- Just won immunity!

Angie in KC

chris said...

now russell has to vote out brett or it will be his worst move ever
he cant win against brett
the jury should vote for russell if they are not holding a grudge
remember Rob and Amber egad
russell vote out brett

Becky said...

Yeah, Brett, if you believe Russell then I have a bridge I would like to sell you.

Becky said...

"Man of his word".... ROFLMAO!

Anonymous said...

Russell is only worried about the jury votes if he lies to the last Galu too.

chris said...

yes but russell has lied to everyone at some point
but give the guy props they never tried to vote him out except when he played the idol and they underestimated him
and realize they all rode his coattails to the end since he promised them final 3
now is not the time to keep brett
sorry i think that will be his dumbest move.
and he would betray mick and just hand another vote to brett.

Becky said...

If he is egotistical enough to keep Brett, then Russell deserves to lose.

Sizzie said...

Russell, after winning immunity looks at the camera and says "I feel like I just won the game'. I keep thinking, Pride Goes Before a Fall and also not Counting Chickens before they hatch. I am just too darned scared to jinx myself to say something like that. Ego, they name is
Russell

Tessa said...

Is Russell that crazy to take Brett?

Tessa said...

Brett voted out.

Becky said...

Bye, Brett.

Margo said...

I'm finally here!!
So what's going on?

Margo

Tessa said...

You have to respect the final three for making it as the underdogs. The one I didn't want to win is the one who deserves to win. Russell is the most amazing player of all time in my book. He beats out Richard Hatch anyday.

Becky said...

Foa Foa is the final three: Russell, Natalie and Mick

Anonymous said...

Mick is gone next unless he wins the final challenge.

Margo said...

is it final 2 or 3?

Tessa said...

It's Brett, Mick and Natalie in the final three.

Tessa said...

I believe it is the final three. Russell is being a huge jerk to Mick and Natalie. It would be something to get to the final tribal council and they could vote him off.

Anonymous said...

I really hope that Karma is hanging around tonight.

Anonymous said...

i loved russell throughout this game, but tonight, he's making me ill. doesn't he realize there are other people in this game, going to the end. what makes you think that the others might, for spite, not vote for one of the other two. he is putting the cart before the horse and he's actually acting like the tail end of the horse right about now!

Becky said...

I am really, really sick of Russell. I half way hope he loses just so he is taken down a notch or six. Nah, he will turn it around.

Anonymous said...

Go Russell!

Sydney said...

Russell can be arrogant with the cameramen, and I do believe he was trying to psyche out both his teammates while also soundlng like he was helping them out.

But if he blows it and that arrogance spills out at TC it's going to cost him. SO CLOSE... watch out R.

Sydney said...

This is an opening statement?

SueGee said...

Go Natalie!!! So glad you are in the final 3!! (and I have you in the pool)

Sue (trying to hold out and watch the show when it is on here)

Look at Shambo grinning like that. I am so glad I'm not on a desert island with her. I know she really means well, but it just would rub me wrong utlitmately I think.

Jaison calls them all out on their professions and how much money they have.

Tessa said...

Brett just asks Mick what he would do on a bro date with him.

Becky said...

Jaison just stabbed all of them in the back. Shambo is dishing it out too. Boy, this jury is brutal!

Jackie said...

Huh? Don't know what you mean by "theckless." If on the show, I'm delayed here

Tessa said...

Russell says that he is one hundred percent different outside of this game. He describes himself with honor, integrity, and loyalty in real life.

Becky said...

I think Russell is blowing smoke about "good" qualities.

Anonymous said...

Tessa...Bro date...How funny was that???

I looked up feckless. It says lack of purpose or vitality, feeble or ineffective. That is what Shambo sayed about Mick.

Tessa said...

Eric just makes a statement.

Mick doesn't do anything for his team. Russell this hurts me you played a nonethical game. We are nothing alike. How did you get there? Natalie people will call you weak but are they any less than Russell game play. Natalie you may be least deserving but you have my vote.

I don't think anyone who could get through medical school and become a doctor could be any of those things.

I think that these jury questions were the best ever. I loved the look on Jeff's face a few times.

Outwit

That is the theme of the show. And maybe even the premise. However, unless there is a blood oath taken, I am under the impression that you (on the jury) can vote for anyone you want, for any reason you want.

What was that jury thinking?

All that deviousness for NOTHING, Russell. KARMA was just waiting for you.

Evil Russell has tears in his eyes. I may have missed a hug or two, but it looked like the only person to look at him, let alone hug him, was Good Russell.

I don't like the outcome. Can't say Russell didn't deserve to lose based on his attitude but seriously he deserved the win in my book.

Russell wouldn't have made it this far if not for a lot of other people.

Russell is upset.

Sydney said...

Didn't deserve it... My husband says that arrogance always kills you in the end. But look at Richard Hatch... and there have been several of the not so nice who have pissed off several jury members but when it came to the vote they mostly were able to look past it and vote for the person who played the best, even if they were an asshole.

I need to dress Russ better.. and Shambo...

Becky said...

He did play the best game, but he was also the biggest a$$ in the game.

Sydney said...

What is that all about Russell? Trying to take the mantle from her. He so doesn't believe that she should have won.. he's really stealing her limelight at the moment. Interesting....

Tessa said...

Russell just offered Natalie ten thousand dollars if Natalie will have Jeff announce Russell as the sole survivor.

russell cracks me up

Natalie will not be remembered, Russell will for this season.

Anonymous said...

oh get over yourself, jaison. you went the gammet with russell and are now only crying the blues because you got voted out. hypocrite

Sydney said...

I think Natalie has had time to beef up her strategy. I think she was smarty enough to see the strong girls went, and I do think she was smart enough to be the person who Russ aligned with and not piss him off as the others did. As he aligned with everyone, all those girls and later all the other guys...

But I don't think she did more strategic stuff than that like she's saying now.

Becky said...

Russell isn't a good loser, is he?

Tessa said...

Russell had socks in his pocket for Jaison to replace the ones he burnt but Jaison dissed Russell and Russell threw them in the fire on stage. Too funny.

Muahahahahaha............
Jaison just more or less called all you Russell fans immoral idiots! Ouch!!

Talk about sore losers ---- JAISON

Joe in NY said...

Seriously, how can Jaison align himself with Russell for 37 days and then claim moral superiority. They may hate Russell and Russell is a lovable a$$, but Jaison is a self-righteous hypocrite.

~~Silk said...

Actually, Jaison had a point. The social aspect IS part of the game, as it is in life, and that's what Russell screwed up.

Jackie said...

Not that I've seen it yet (delayed here), but I think Russell played a very good game only really ruining it with his ego. But why would I care what Jaison thinks of my choice? I liked him until he started whining about the third week or so.

Joe in NY said...

And seriously, how can Natalie claim not to own all of Russell's misdeeds? The entire Foa Foa hid behind him and now claim he's unworthy? They could have bounced him anytime they wanted, but they all wanted to ride with him to the Final 3. Shame on all of them.

Anonymous said...

Go back to your million $ bank account and quit crying about it Russ. You lost. You weren't as smart as you thought you were. YOU picked who to take with you. You have to live with that now.

KARMA is a Bitch!

Joe in NY said...

Hi Silk,

Russell took the bullets. But if he wasn't out there fighting like that, does anyone really think the Foa Foa 4 would have survived? Remember the playing of the idol. The intimidation of John into jumping sides. Russell was (is?) a self-righteous arrogant (but lovable) a$$, but he kind of had to be to get the Foa Foa 4 to the end.

chris said...

but jaison did not care what immoral thing russell did until in involved blindsiding jaison.
these people are all hypocrites
russell was visibly upset
he does deserve the title
he was one of if not the best player
and I don't like him!

SueGee said...

I think we will be seeing a lot more of Russell in the next round of Survivor All-Stars. Wonder how long he will last in that group? Since the show was filmed right after this one finished (and its being edited right now) The others will not know who he is and how he manipulates...

And congrats to Natalie! And to show I know how to be a winner, I have brought one of my famous homemade cherry cheesecakes to pass around and share with all you that have stuck around.

Sue

~~Silk said...

Russell still hasn't absorbed that you can't stab people in the back, and then expect them to turn around and shake your hand. He could have accomplished the same things without being such a snake about it.

The fact that he crowed about every oust makes it worse.

Shell said...

This is a game... in which the goal is to Outwit, Outlast and Outplay everyone else (not treat people nice and be their friend). Hands down, Russell should have won this season with who was up there with him. Russell is one of the best game players in the history of Survivor... I think they should allow America to vote in the end.. enough of these bitter sore losers because they got Outwitted, Outlasted and Outplayed.

~~Silk said...

Joe in NY - Foa Foa wouldn't have been so bad off if Russell hadn't set out to break their spirit from week 1. Remember all the sabotage of his own tribe?

monty924 said...

Well Jackie, I guess our Mick didn't get any votes from the jury. Not surprising, but Russell really deserved this season.

Bitter Jury!

Joe in NY said...

True, Silk. Russell did undermine his own tribe a bit. But they mostly suffered from a lack of leadership (IMHO). Mick did nothing.

~~Silk said...

If life worked the way it should, Good Russel would have made it through and won. I really think he would never have been voted off.

Becky said...

I had Russell in the pool, but by the time the jury voted I wanted him gone almost as much as the first of the game.

Silk, I agree, you don't stab people in the back and then expect them to kiss your fat hiney.

He did out-play, but I think him bragging about his million dollar bank account did him in. If he hadn't bragged about that then they might have given it to him, but he made it too hard to accept, best game playing aside.

they mostly voted for her because they hate Russell. Not the same thing as believing she played better. Since she hid behind Russell and let him make the big moves, isn't she just Russell light? She can't pretend that she doesn't own Russell's misbehavior.

Let's make it a party! There are several in this "family" in NY or PA. Joe's in Rochester. I'm near Kingston. Binghamton is (sorta) central to upper NY and Eastern PA. Let's do lunch, sometime after Easter. Mid-April, maybe. Is it a date?

Geez...they could have given us a couple of names. I'm dying to know who's in it. I would LOVE to see James come back. And Rupert. Rob without Amber. Richard Hatch is out of jail! LOL. Russell, of course. No Johnny Fairplay, please...he quit last time.

Anon 11:04...they've already filmed Heroes vs. Villains. So none of them know about Russell.

I think it would be more interesting if they mixed the heroes and villains up. Having a team of "heroes" and a team of "villains" will have very odd dynamics. And where would someone like Parvati go?

I'm so excited. I need some spoilers. Has anyone heard anything!?!?

lynn1 said...

This was in my opinion, the best season of Survivor ever mostly due to Russell. Love him or hate him he brought new life to the show.

I found the finale and the reveal of who won to be disappointing. Natalie is a nice young woman. I have nothing against her but Russell was the star of this season.

I believe the jury got the vote wrong and it will be the talk around the water cooler tomorrow.

Margo said...

I can not believe they would ask Johnnie Fairplay back since he basically quit last time he was back.

Russ was the top player, but Natalie made him believe her and keep her when he easily could have voted her out at any time. In fact, in one of the last go rounds, he was deciding between Mick and Jaison, and said he would keep Natalie. For whatever reason, she played him enough to not let him think she was a threat. Outwitted him. Was it unintentional on her part or did she understand what she was doing? That will be the debate. Also, what Russ lacked as game player was heart, he only thought game and Jeff has said from the first season that Survivor is a political game that mixes strength with people skills.

The jury was bent on hurting Russ, I think, so it seems to me that taking Shambo is about the only person he could have won against. I was surprised when he voted her out last week.

RU KIDDING, what is wrong with people today, how can so many people like ruthless Russel? Since when does outwit, outlast, outplay mean, be an asshole? Can't stand Russel!!!!!!!!!! He should have never made it that far!

If Russell is on the All-Stars, I don't expect that he will make it to the end there because all those players won't be as wimpy as these guys were.

Anon 11:31, there is nothing wrong with people thinking Russell is deserving of the win over Mick and Natalie, even though he is an Ass.
